Holly McGarry has just completed the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Health Studies (Health Science pathway) at NWRC Limavady and will begin her Degree in Adult Nursing at UU in September.
Holly struggled with spellings and reading at school but was unaware she needed support with her studies because she had dyslexia.
“I was 16 when I found out I had dyslexia,” said Holly. “At NWRC I was given great support with my studies, I had a reader to assist me, and extra time with my studies. I loved studying Health Studies at Limavady campus and I’ve also found employment in a residential home.
“The course is the best you could do to get into a Degree in Healthcare. I’m delighted that I am able to progress now to study Nursing.
“I would say to anyone who wants to be a nurse that this is the course to do. Don’t let anything stop you, even if you are struggling at school or you have an extra challenge like dyslexia. The support is there at NWRC.”
